Fire safety tips from officials for Thanksgiving holiday

With Thanksgiving just a couple of days away, many are already planning their holiday meal, but fire departments want to make sure you cook that feast safely. Everyone wants a holiday full of good food, family and fun. No one wants their holiday to end with their home going up in flames. The National Fire Protection Association said Thanksgiving Day is the leading day of the year for home-cooking fires. The NFPA said there are three to four times as many cooking fires on Thanksgiving Day compared to any other day of the year.
